Savannah Chrisley Opens Up About Mental Health and Past Suicide Attempt

Savannah Chrisley is getting candid about her struggle with mental health issues, and how being the star of a reality TV show impacted her health journey.Savannah recently sat down with mental health advocate Patrick Custer for a new episode of her podcast, and she reflected on the toll her role on took on her and her family due to their sudden fame.«It really was, in a way, an acting gig. We knew we had to show up, we had to be funny, that's what we did,» Savannah, 25, explained.

«When we started… it was pitched to us that it would be a reality show. And then it quickly changed.

I think people, production companies, networks, took advantage of my dad's ability to approach a situation with humor.»«They took advantage of that to the point to where he always had to be funny. Every situation had to be approached with humor,» she said of her father, Todd Chrisley.

«He's used his humor to cope with a lot of things throughout his life.»Savannah said her dad has undergone «a lot of therapy» in recent years to learn how to openly discuss things instead of deflect with jokes and humor, and that she's had to seek help for her own issues — largely to do self-image problems.«Growing up the way that I grew up and how everything was this picture-perfect image and I had an older brother who struggled with mental illness, addiction, all of those things, and then I was on TV at 16 and I was being told what I needed to look like, what I needed to be,» she recalled. «It was like it created two [versions] of me.

(Photo by Luke Dray/Getty Images) KAMPALA, Uganda - Uganda's president has signed into law tough new anti-gay legislation supported by many in this East African country but widely condemned by rights activists and others abroad.The version of the bill signed by President Yoweri Museveni doesn't criminalize those who identify as LGBTQ, a key concern for campaigners who condemned an earlier draft of the legislation as an egregious attack on human rights.But the new law still prescribes the death penalty for "aggravated homosexuality," which is defined as cases of sexual relations involving people infected with HIV as well as with minors and other categories of vulnerable people.A suspect convicted of "attempted aggravated homosexuality" can be imprisoned for up to 14 years, according to the legislation.RELATED: UN rights chief calls Uganda anti-LGBTQ bill 'deeply troubling'Parliamentary Speaker Anita Among said in a statement that the president had "answered the cries of our people" in signing the bill."With a lot of humility, I thank my colleagues the Members of Parliament for withstanding all the pressure from bullies and doomsday conspiracy theorists in the interest of our country," the statement said.Museveni had returned the bill to the national assembly in April, asking for changes that would differentiate between identifying as LGBTQ and actually engaging in homosexual acts.

Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger arraignment: What to expect
MOSCOW, Idaho - Bryan Kohberger, the 28-year-old criminology buff accused of ambushing sleeping college students with a large knife in November, is expected to be arraigned Monday morning on murder and other charges.And if he finally enters a plea, it would trigger a countdown – giving prosecutors two months to officially announce that they are seeking the death penalty in connection with the ambush slayings of Kaylee Goncalves and Madison Mogen, both 21, as well as Xana Kernodle and Ethan Chapin, 20."Upon entry of plea, the most morbid of all clocks starts ticking – the prosecuting attorney has 60 days to file, in writing, a notice of intent to seek the death penalty," said Edwina Elcox, a prominent Boise-based defense attorney who previously represented "cult mom" Lori Vallow.There are several potential outcomes – although experts say surprises are always possible:Ethan Chapin, 20, Xana Kernodle, 20, Madison Mogen, 21, and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, along with the women's two other roommates in Kaylee Goncalves' final Instagram post, shared the day before the slayings. (@kayleegoncalves/Instagram) Possible scenarios in court Monday:A guilty plea would be highly unlikely given Kohberger's defense team just added the high-powered Elisa Massoth, according to Elcox.Massoth once attended the same college as the four victims, is certified to defend death penalty cases and boasts of being "one of the top criminal defense lawyers in Idaho."One of her previous cases includes the overturning of a conviction for a man accused of attempted murder and kidnapping.
